Those four words characterize my professional life. They also characterize me personally…
I am… a licensed tour guide and tour leader.
And as such I have a wide range of qualifications and quite a collection of licenses.
Among them are the ones to guide in and around Gdansk, as well as Torun.
I am also licensed to guide and lead tours in and around the two northern provinces of Poland – the Pomeranian and Warmia-Mazury.
I also have licenses to guide in and around the Castle Museum in Malbork and Nicolaus Copernicus Museum in Frombork etc… I am also a licensed tour leader, and have powers to teach new guides.
I collect… bricks.
Gothic bricks, as I specialize in the times of Prussia Teutonic and Ducal as well as Royal. I collect bricks, because they can tell a story and can make the walls reveal their secrets.
I track… Tutivillus, which is not the easiest task, but is a guarantee of an adventure. As for Tutivillus – I wrote about him elsewhere in this blog….
I love… what I am doing.
Quitting office work some years ago, and devoting my life to guiding, I gained a privilege of setting off to work with pleasure. Besides I train new guides, I teach how to read walls, paintings, symbols. I make the places I guide around – special. I investigate family genealogies, I write a little, I paint, and most of all – I take a lot of pictures.
Privately I am a happy person, as I am doing what I love …
p.s. and very recently – on the 5th October (2013) I got a Merit Badge in Tourism – (granted by the Ministry of Sports and Tourism)
